More than 13 million people engage in amateur gardening in almost 2% of the territory. This practice has a significant impact on nature, as fertilizers and pesticides used make up 10 to 15% of the product discharged. Chemicals are easily replaced by non-toxic natural products in organic gardening. Many biological solutions are effective against almost any disease or pest problem. These methods can be easily used by gardeners. Here are some landscape design services.
When a plant is depleted, it experiences an imbalance that must be addressed. Either his environment is not suitable, or he lacks the water and mineral elements necessary for its development, or a little help is needed to protect him from external attacks. In the latter case, biological agents interfere. Variety is of utmost importance in the garden. The more species present on your land, the more likely it is that there is an auxiliary view of the gardener (a useful view to combat unwanted). Therefore, this diversity should be promoted by planting the maximum number of local species, each of which will attract insects associated with them, which, in turn, will attract other insects, small mammals or birds. This will help you in the biological fight against unwanted species in the garden.
The basics of permaculture design. If your land is attractive enough, you can also take advantage of the help of local wildlife to protect unwanted species from your plantations. This is called an auxiliary view. Thus, a hedgehog and shrew feast on slugs and many insects, owls chase small mammals such as voles, tits and other passerines, attack insects, bats also devour a large number. All insects should not be removed. Some are very helpful and fight other problematic insects in the garden. The main aphid predators are ladybugs, which also feed on mealy bugs and ticks. Aphids also have enemy lurks, lionfish, beetles and parasitic hymenoptera. These insects also attack noctuids, psillids, caterpillars, Colorado beetles, slugs, flies … You can attract these insects in various ways: by setting up shelters for insects, growing flowers rich in pollen and nectar, avoiding the spread of even organic insecticides.
Water harvesting plays many roles in school and community life. Natural Building and organic gardening are places where: – it is pleasant to play, work and study; – many activities are carried out (for example, the study of insects, measuring the height of rainfall); – People meet (community members, parents, children, teachers, cooks, etc.). – Events are held (for example, selling snacks, theater performances, demonstrations, cooking festivals); – exhibited works (photographs, drawings, maps, editions, etc.); – everyone learns, including visitors and teachers. Providing recipes at school is not enough. It may be necessary for the garden to generate income, but this should be accompanied by educational goals. This will help agroforestry.
Prescription garden products should also be educational in nature according to bio-remediation rules. There may be a negative attitude towards the garden. Agriculture as trade and horticulture as activities are sometimes not considered and considered boring. The school should strive to change this attitude and start by discussing ideas and goals with all stakeholders. Try linking gardening to school results, including homework. Reading and writing should not be forgotten in your garden program!
The integration of the garden into the school curriculum depends on the situation. To what extent can a garden be included in a class curriculum? It depends on the topics proposed (for example, agriculture, environmental science, nutrition, business research, home economics), teachers working on the principle of freedom must achieve their goals, the interdisciplinary nature of the project and so on.
Obviously, each teacher can use the garden on their own to strengthen the content of their education, and the school can include this opportunity in their on-the-job training program. Community education requires caution. The school must ensure that it has enough knowledge to educate the community and that the community is ready to receive its education. At the same time, consider “advising” the community, rather than “educating” it. For example, schools can encourage children to explain at home what they do at school, invite families to come and look at the garden, create a model garden, and distribute bedding. Landscape design services will also have to learn from the community and show what they really do.
